Storm time

Well, we had quite a bit of a storm in the night.
A tree from my neighbours garden over the road came down unfortunately. It landed right across the road, and blocked my drive.

I can say though that I am honestly pleased it came my way! Had it gone the other way, it would have landed on their bungalow :( 

I have no electric this morning, neither has my next door neighbour, but we've had offers of tea, car lifts (as my drive is blocked) and showers (hinting? Lol) which has made me realise what lovely neighbours I actually have :)

Hopefully the electric will be back on sometime today....I'm a bit worried about what I may lose in the when the electric does come on, I may have to do quite a bit of cooking so that it's not wasted.

I have quite a bit of fabric crocheting to do as I've put in an application for a stall at a Christmas fair on 30th November, and as yet have no stock.....
I've also tried to get a space in a local vintage warehouse, but alas, they told me that they have a waiting list of over 200 folks waiting for spaces to come free.... Even though they keep advertising their space....

Well, hopefully my next post will show some headway in my crafting, and the little vintage pieces I got at the vintage fair the other week.

Have a great week folks.

Crafting mojo

Well, it's been another dry space between blog posts! 
But the good news is that since my last post, I have got my crafting mojo back!  Since I split with my partner at the begining of the year, I have been seriously lacking any crafty thoughts. Well, I mean I've had a bit of crochet on the go (which I must have attempted a handful of times), but other than that, I haven't done any sewing or papercrafts at all :(

Yesterday my crafty soul had a huge boost too!    I went here :~

To the vintage fair at Blandford Forum. Oh I had a fantastic time! My best most cheerful day in long time I can tell you :)

The hall was packed out -not only with other crafty, vintage loving souls, but it was jam packed with sellers too. Quite a few of them were brand new sellers to me whom I'd never seen before, so it was a very fresh, enjoyable experience for me!
In fact it was so packed in the morning that I had to leave the hall as I was just too hot. 

But when I went back in the late afternoon, it was really nice to look round with a degree of peace!

This lady :~

Has totally inspired me to take up my needle and thread again! 
She is Teresa from Willapark Designs. A really talented lady.  

But it was a lovely day, and I spent my full budget that I had yo spend too! 

I'll show you what I bought next time.

Have a great day :)
